Agri-Expo 2018 of six day duration was inaugurated by Shri E. Chandrasekharan, Hon’ble Minister for Revenue, Govt. of Kerala at CPCRI Kasaragod on 5-1-2018.

The Hon’ble Minister while addressing the gathering pointed out that the research findings are to be confidently adopted by the farmers. Farmers need to equip themselves to overcome the challenges caused by various pests, diseases as well as adverse environmental conditions to enable them to refund agricultural loans availed by them. Research and the extension services play a major role at this juncture. Besides, the Government is offering its wholehearted support  in controlling the adversities faced by the farmers in the value chain of agricultural production, procurement, processing and marketing.

The Minister pointed out the importance and future of organic agriculture in the district to naturally overcome the major problems caused by the indiscriminate use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides in the past.

Smt. TR Ushadevi, Principal Agriculture Officer, Kasaragod while offering felicitations, briefed the role of the Agri Expo, the role of ATMA in agricultural extension and invited the involvement of the farmers  for a fruitful learning experience.

Shri Suresh Kumar Shetty, Member, IMC of ICAR-CPCRI, while offering his felicitations remarked that the recent escalation in market rate of  commodities such as coconut is providing encouragement to farmers and is a welcome situation to adopt new technologies.

Dr. P. Chowdappa, Director, ICAR-CPCRI welcomed the gathering and Dr. C. Thamban, Convenor of the Agri-Expo-2018  delivered vote of thanks.
